I get that kids love to colour on the sidewalk with different types of chalk – it’s a great summer activity. Our area has no sidewalks – but we do have great driveways.
So tell me please, why, at 8 am this morning there was a little kid IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD chalking to his heart’s content?? He was a barely discernible lump in the road from where I was looking and was so intent on what he was doing. There are so many school buses that drive through our neighborhood at that time of the morning. It scared me. Big time.
I rolled down my window as I rolled past, and told him firmly to get out of the road, that he was in danger of being hurt. His answer “I don’t care”.
Luckily he ran inside his house before I had to stop the car and go find a parent. How would you have handled it?
